More Pirates in the Classroom

I have worked in my room the past few days and have added a few more pirate elements.  My dear friend, Angela, found the cutest pirate cups at Target and offered to pick me up some!  She is awesome!  I am going to use these in my birthday box for the kids’ birthday presents.DSC01185
I also changed my word wall board.  Before it looked like this.
But then I found the cutest item on the Teachers Pay Teachers website.  It’s a pirate themed word wall set!  Now my board looks like this.  The clipart is so adorable I bought it from ScrappinDoodles so I could make my own products!
I also made my helpers area into Mrs. Seymour’s Treasured Helpers.  I had bought 2 sets of pirate themed bulletin board materials and I used the big treasure chest and jewels to make the helper’s chart.  I will add my students’ names to the jewels after I get my class list.  I also found the job cards from another website.  I’m thinking about redoing the helper charts because the pirate is not as cute as the clipart.  What do you think?

I attached adhesive velcro dots to the job cards and the back of the jewels.  When I change helpers, it will be a snap.
I also have a vocabulary area on my bulletin board.DSC01188
I also fixed my literacy center chart with pirate themed center labels.  The first time I made them the cards were different sizes.  I’ve figured out how to fix that, so now I’m going to have to make a new set.  Don’t you hate that!?

Another product I found on the TPT website were these golden rules posters. 
Last, but not least, I found some pirate themed name tags at The SchoolBox teacher supply store.  I’m sure I will find many uses for them as the year goes on.  As you can see, I am using them as labels for our finished and unfinished work section.
